Never like to raise any negatives especially after a good win but Walcott has to be dropped in my opinion. Just doesn’t cut it.

1st for assists and 3rd on goals after Sig and Ricky. Not too shabby.

He was pretty ineffective yesterday but has stats like BJU says. But now Lookman has given the manager something to think about.

I think it was more to do with the RB and LB not being allowed too far forward to overlap due to Townsend and Zaha. Both him and Bernard were isolated.

Walcott is one of those players who worries defenders just by being there. Interplay between him and Seamus was bound to be a bit rusty. Nice to have Lookman applying pressure on both him and Bernard though, something that has been lacking in the past.

I see where you’re coming from with his stats even if it is just the 2 goals and assists but I think he’s been pretty poor all season. He does absolutely nothing for 90% of the game, misplaces passes, doesn’t do enough defensively and quite often misses easy opportunities. That miss when Sigurdsson played him through was criminal, not that it mattered in the end but real quality players step up and take those chances when they come. Clearly Silva sees something in him to have him starting every week, but I think once Bernard gets fully up to scratch Walcott will be in and out the team (I think he’s better suited to away games when we play on the counter) and Tosun will come back into the ST role. More than likely a lot of you will have a different opinion but I think if we’re to be a top quality team then we need to be ruthless and drop underperforming players such as Walcott. Remember the guy couldn’t cut it at a bang average Arsenal team last year.

3rd game on the bounce with least touches of an outfield player and is averaging 1 tackle a game and 0.6 interceptions. i no his job isn't to win the ball but for me that shows a real lack of involvement in the game.
He frustrates me as he's a top player but drifts threw games then has moments of brilliance, bit more involvement and effort and he would be a star where as now he's looking a bit of a weak link.

Like I said, at least the manager is being offered other options from other players now. Often in these situations, a player gets one goal and all the confidence come flooding back. His stats over many seasons have been better than now. A bit of patience may be needed.
